ou r story

MISSIVE is a letterpress brand founded by designer Lisa Willis in 2008, when a creative outlet became

a passion. With a mission to bring stylish correspondence to mailboxes everywhere, the offerings have expanded to include greeting cards, social stationery, announcements and more. What began as a one-woman operation has evolved into a family business—Lisa creates new designs for their collections while Gregory skillfully runs the presses at their Bay Area letterpress studio. Each piece is hand printed on vintage presses, using luxurious cotton and recycled content papers. With a less-is-more aesthetic and a focus on elegant letter forms, vintage imagery and classic design, our collection of charming letterpress cards and social stationery is intended to delight both the writer and the recipient. We hope our letterpress goods continue to brighten someone’s day, every day. We're honored to have had our designs featured in both print and online publications including BRIDES, Southern Living, Stationery Trends, Victoria, Oh So Beautiful Paper, 100 Layer Cake, Paper Crave, Apartment Therapy, 7x7.com and more.

Due to the hand-printed process, there may be slight variations in ink coverage, color, impression and/or registration, unmistakable characteristics which lend charm and authenticity to each printed piece.
